Placenta Previa At 15 Weeks
I was just diagnosed with placenta previa. I'm 15 weeks. Will my baby survive and what am I looking at for the rest of my pregnancy?
You'll be okay: Placenta previa at 15 weeks is VERY common. You'll have another "formal" ultrasound at 18-20 weeks during which your doctor/ultrasonographer will look at all of baby's anatomy, and the placenta again. Sometimes placenta previas move out of the way of cervix as uterus grows. Even if it doesn't all you have to do is NO intercourse or orgasms. Go to L&D if have bleeding.Follow all doctors' instruct ...Read more
Optimistic: The uterus has a lot of growing to do from 15 weeks on. The placenta can migrate away from the cervix as the uterus grows. If you experience vaginal bleeding you should see your doctor but you should be optimistic that the condition will very likely resolve on its own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosis with placenta previa after some spotting. I'm 15 weeks and still spotting-light brown. Is this normal? If this will correct when?
Placenta previa: I'm not sure of your question - is placenta previa normal - NO. Is bleeding with previa normal - yes. Spotting just light brown sounds like either old blood or very slow bleed, which is better than brisk, bright red bleeding. Some previas "correct" themselves - that is the placenta moves away from the cervix area. This can happen at any time during the pregnancy.It has to be followed VERY CLOSELY! ...Read more
Lifted something heavier than i thought. Have placenta previa (10 weeks). How will i know if the placenta detached or if something is wrong?
Bleeding: Bleeding and cramping will be tell tale signs of a problem. ...Read more
Yes, possible!: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

I was diagnosed with placenta previa at 20 weeks and was told no sex, I am now 27 weeks. Can my husband put in just the tip or rub around my vagina?
Placenta previa: I would abstain from anything in the vagina. The concern is any possible pressure on the cervix could cause an emergency situation. Find other ways for sexual release. ...Read more
I had a 2nd csection 10 weeks ago (previous was 2 years ago). During surgery they found i had placenta previa & had to cut through the placenta. i h?
What is the question: I do not know what your situation was , but almost always placenta previa should be diagnosed before you had the csection by an ultrasound , all of my pts get at least 4 ultrasounds , the last one being 34-36 weeks which also checks the location of the placenta, because if u had a previous csection a placenta previa can often cause a placenat accreta which can cause big problems , glad u did ok. ...Read more
